Are you tired of being controlled by your business? Tired of the never-ending challenges of running a pawn shop? Is the pawnbroker life treating you well… or beating you down?
If you’re ready to take charge of your life and reclaim a brighter future, I can help you get there.
But to get there, you’ll first have to let go of being a pawn broker and become Pawn Leader.
As a Pawn Leader, you’ll learn the skills you need to level up your leadership and take control of your time.
You really can run a successful pawn shop AND have time to spend with your family and friends.
Welcome to Pawn Leaders
What does it mean to be a Pawn Leader?
It’s my job to show you.
My goal is to help you go from a struggling broker, with no time, no life, who’s missing connection with the ones you love, and in the worse shape of your life, into a take-charge business leader.
I’ll do that through this blog, my emails, and the Pawn Leaders Podcast, which is the best way for you to start learning how to step out of pawn broker and step into Pawn Leader.
The podcast is designed to give you a weekly dose of inspiration and practical information. You’ll find me dishing out advice to help you succeed in the pawn industry and in life. Joining me will be a variety of industry experts, from both within the industry and outside of it. They’re here to share their wisdom with you and show you a different way of doing things.
Each episode will leave you with new ideas for being a better leader. The podcast will cover:
- The importance of company culture
- How to finally move that huge backlog of inventory
- Why you must get your staff onboard and motivated to succeed
- How to make smart decisions
- How & why to keep tabs on the budget
- The importance of strengthening your current skills
- Improving work-life balance
- Boosting your profitability and much, much, more
If that sounds good, then stick around.
Why should you listen to me?
I’m Yigal Adato, and I’m the host of the Pawn Leaders Podcast.
Pawnbroking is in my blood. I’m a third-generation pawnbroker, and for most of my life, this is was the only thing I knew. But after joining the industry for myself, I got tired of being tired and decided to find a better way to do things.
Running my stores used to consume my life. It took all my energy and brain power to deal with unhappy employees, thin margins, and never-ending industry changes.
My businesses were successful financially, but they weren’t sustainable. I knew I was going to burn out if something didn’t change. To make it worse, my wife was crying about how lonely she was, and my dad (also a lifelong pawnbroker) got really sick. Obviously something had to change.
So, I started experimenting. I dove deep into the topics of leadership, marketing, and strategy searching for a path to success that didn’t leave me drained.
Eventually, I found that path and used it to help grow our family shop into a multi-million dollar operation. It was incredible.
And I knew I really had discovered a better way of doing things. I also knew I couldn’t keep my system to myself.
Instead, I wanted to help other pawnbrokers run successful businesses without sacrificing their lives.
I was ready to change the industry from the inside out.
But I couldn’t keep running my stores AND helping others, so I made a difficult decision.
After sixteen years in the industry, I left the family business with a new purpose: to help YOU be a leader in your business.
As a leadership consultant dealing ONLY with pawnbrokers, I want to help you find the leader, marketer, and strategist inside of you and unleash them. These are the secrets to a thriving business… and an epic life!
